About East Coast Datacom, Inc

East Coast Datacom, Inc. is a customer oriented, high technology enterprise which was formed in 1994 to design, manufacture and support Wide Area Network Equipment. We manufacture the broadest line of Network Emulators in the network test equipment market supporting over 18 different interfaces for Serial, Telco and Ethernet.

For Ethernet, the WanRaptor™ Network Emulator allows users to test and stage critical network equipment adding network latency, loss, Jitter and re-ordering impairments. For Serial data and Telco the RDS-PLUS delay simulator is a modular, network link error and delay emulator that provides a realistic simulation of physical network behavior with respect to time delays and bit errors.

We also manufacture an extensive line of legacy network equipment critical to the military, government and Fortune 500 companies. These include data broadcast splitters, digital sharing devices, interface converters and many other network adapters. Our highly respected Sync2IP Converter is a unique solution for Sync data to IP conversion as we support any sync data protocol.

We hope you enjoy our collection of products we present on our web site. Keep in mind we can modify or design a new solution for your unique application.

The CE-232 is a point-to-point device that allows the extension of eight control signals far greater in distance than that of conventional RS-232. The CE-232 is terminated to a DCE type device (on the RS-232 port) at one end of the communication link. A CAT-5/6 cable is then terminated to the CE-232 and attached to another CE-232 at the corresponding end. The CE-232 transmits box to box via RS-423 signals. This allows all control signals to be transmitted, bi-directionally for distances that may equal up to 5000 ft.

Located on the front panel of the CE-232 are eight (8) LED indicators. The PWR indicator, TXD, RXD, RTS, CTS, DCD, TXD and RXC which represent the RS-232 control signals. The control signal indicators act as a break out box in that installation and trouble shooting are a straight forward process. When properly terminated and with the presence of DATA, all control signals are active between the two connected CE-232s and the LEDs illuminated.

The CE-232 is housed in a sturdy metal enclosure and will provide in excess of 500,000 hours of reliable service.

The CE-232 has a three year warranty and a 24 hour turnaround on warranty repairs.
